Rosemary, Creative & Digital

‘When I first came to UTC it was such a new experience, everything was so exciting, there were lots of different and new opportunities. It’s really different to my school before.’

UTC student Rosemary Ridley already knows her career will be in the creative industries.

Rosemary has completed a technical qualification in Creative and Digital Media alongside her GCSEs. On opening her results, she said, ‘They were what I was expecting, I’m happy.’

Now she has completed her GCSEs Rosemary is moving to sixth form to study for her A Levels in Art, Textiles and German. After her A Levels, Rosemary hopes to go into costume design: ‘I’ve enjoyed the design element at UTC, like when we designed a DVD cover and when we created our own film trailers. It’s a different hands-on experience that I’ve not had before.’

Rosemary joined the UTC after visiting and remembers thinking that the UTC looked really exciting: ‘When I first came it was such a new experience, everything was so exciting, there were lots of different and new opportunities. It’s really different to my school before.’
